"In order to avoid the shame of a daughter choosing to identify with a minority faith, a family patriarch might arrange for her to be forcibly married to a man of the dominant religion . . . Without the education or financial means to support herself, she is often trapped in an increasingly abusive marriage without legal recourse.
When children are added, those antagonistic to her faith within her new familial structure gain new leverage in her dilemma . . . These diverse dynamics, when observed as recurring patterns of attack on a minority religious community, are highly effective at undermining the free expression of religion."
